A deeply affecting, funny, insightful meditation that challenges readers to find the spiritual meaning of parenting. Every day, parents are bombarded by demands. The pressures of work and life are relentless; our children’s needs are often impossible to meet; and we rarely, if ever, allow ourselves the time and attention necessary to satisfy our own inner longings. Parenthood is difficult, demanding, and draining. And yet, argues Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, if we can approach it from a different mindset, perhaps the work of parenting itself can offer the solace we seek. Rooted in Judaism but incorporating a wide-range of religious and literary traditions, Nurture the Wow asks, Can ancient ideas about relationships, drudgery, pain, devotion, and purpose help make the hard parts of a parent’s job easier and the magical stuff even more so? Ruttenberg shows how parenting can be considered a spiritual practice—and how seeing it that way can lead to transformation. This is a parenthood book, not a parenting book; it shows how the experiences we have as parents can change us for the better. Enlightening, uplifting, and laugh-out-loud funny, Nurture the Wow reveals how parenthood—in all its crazy-making, rage-inducing, awe and joy-filled moments—can actually be the path to living fully, authentically, and soulfully.

At age 30 Evan Moffic became the leader of a large congregation. He had great success. But he couldn't find happiness. Then he found a 2000-year-old prayer. In it were hidden elements of Jewish wisdom. They became a part of his life and those of his congregation and transformed them and him. What if we had a clear path to follow when life disappointed us? What if we had a time-tested guide for a life of deeper meaning and happiness? That is what Rabbi Moffic discovered in an ancient Jewish prayer. Based on ten practices any person can follow, the prayer has helped thousands of people-couples, teenagers, empty nesters struggling with loss, divorce, and ruptured relationships-find renewed meaning and purpose in their lives. Moffic discovered the power of the prayer when he was called to become the youngest rabbi to lead a large US synagogue at just thirty years of age. The prayer became his guidepost, providing him with the wisdom to lead beyond his years. By incorporating the power of this prayer into his life and using it to guide his congregation and community, he became known as "the smiling rabbi." In the tradition of Rabbi Harold Kushner, Rabbi Evan Moffic opens up the Jewish wisdom tradition with insights for today. Drawing from interactions with thousands of congregants, as well as his own experience; relating stories of real people; providing accessible commentary from contemporary psychologists; and sprinkling in warm humor, this rabbi of a new generation reveals the means and meaning of joyous living that will appeal to everyone.

What values are most important to us? What is true strength? What constitutes real kindness? How and when can the average 21st century family discuss these questions? There are few opportunities for parents and children to think together about values and spirituality in our always-on, very connected and busy culture. This books invites parents, teens and school-aged children to indulge together in meaningful conversation during the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot. The spiritual path of Counting the Omer is, of course, not only for children. This guide is child-friendly, but not child-"only. " Counting the Omer, the Biblical command to attend closely to the 49 days separating Passover and Shavuot, was transformed by ancient mystics into an invitation to contemplate God s attributes and learn to emulate them wisely. The Omer began as the celebration of the new harvest; so too can it be a time for growing our humanity by enriching it with sparks of Divinity. With quotes from philosophers, scientists, artists, historical personalities, and authors, Counting the Days builds a framework for appreciative self-reflectionon on the structure of the Sefirot the mystics description of seven discernable traits of the Divine. It is designed for use year after year, with simple contemplative exercises and meditations offered for those ready to dive more deeply than they can through words alone. With Counting the Days as your guide, you and your family can take the journey to Shavuot together, and arrive feeling grateful, renewed and connected. Advance Praise for Counting the Days Counting the Days offers a powerful way to bring the spiritual practice of Counting the Omer to the whole family with depth and meaning. It's a must-have in the Jewish home. --Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, Author of "Nurture the Wow: Finding Spirituality in the Frustration, Boredom, Tears, Poop, Desperation, Wonder, and Radical Amazement of Parenting " Lea Gavrielli has written a beautiful, wise and compassionate guide through the Omer. It is filled with practical mindfulness instructions, ideas and quotes that open the heart and stimulate the mind. I could see using it over and over again throughout the whole year and not just the 7 weeks. --Larry Schwartz, Chair of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality Counting the Days is an invitation to adventure, using the Counting of the Omer as a framework for family conversation about ideas, values and the tradition. From Helen Keller to Herzl, Mother Teresa to Jason Mraz, wisdom and insights from a wide range of times and perspectives gather on the page to offer different pathways to insight and truth. Having watched some of these ideas engage our school s students and teachers, I highly recommend this text as a way to reinvigorate the tradition of the Counting of the Omer, ensuring that the journey from Pesach to Shavuot is one filled with discovery and delight. --Rabbi Andrew Davids, Head of School, Beit Rabban Day School, New York City"
